High Speed Rail


​Dallas High Speed Rail

The Dallas High Speed Rail Project consists of a passenger rail system that will operate from Dallas to Houston in an estimated travel time of less than 90 minutes. Texas Central Partners is the private company currently developing the  system that will begin construction late 2018/early 2019.  On August 24, 2016, City Council authorized a Cooperation Agreement with Texas Central Rail Holdings LLC to agree upon both entities working together throughout the federal, state and local review processes.

Key Performance Criteria the City of Dallas will aim to achieve are:

  • Economic and Environmental Sustainability
  • Economic Development
  • High Quality Urban Design
  • Infrastructure Enhancement and Circulation Improvements
  • Multi-Modal Transportation Connections
  • Revenue Enhancements for City Facilities
